What's New in Version 1.3.3
Overall, this is a pretty good app. It's just lacking refinement, proper documentation and some bug fixes.
As others mentioned, with extenders you will see the screen dim after around 8-10 min after choosing to watch content from within the app.
The big issue for me however is the fact that in order to get extenders to show up as available for selection, I have to have my local admin account on the Media Center machine actively logged in. This is a big problem as I use Xbox extenders to watch tv on a dedicated machine that I never use for any other purpose. My account is never logged into. Logging in through remote desktop doesn't work, you must physically login on the actual machine. Also, when the account is not logged into, choosing to view a channel causes the app to blow up.
Please fix these issues.
I look forward to future updates and hope you are able to offer remote streaming of content!
Best WMC App out there!
This is by far the best media center app out there. I not only use it at home but also from work and on trips all the time to schedule shows to be recorded. I love that I can browse the guide, get info on shows, even select a show and then play it to any of the TVs at home, all from my iPhone. The season premier feature is way cool, especially now that the fall shows are all starting soon. I don’t have a ton of ripped movies but I’ll probably add a lot more since those are all supported with this app as well. We have a mixed house of Apple and other phones and tablets and I love that there’s a version of this for all the platforms.
Great App, few updates needed
Overall, I love this app. It makes it very convenient to remotely control my media center no matter which extender I'm using, but renaming the extenders is a needed update. Also love the ability to remotely schedule recordings. The remote control feature needs to allow for a resume option. Any show you select with the App always starts from the beginning. Starting a show this way also causes issues on the Xbox, where the Xbox will idle after 10 minutes and dim the screen in the middle of the show. Overall, these are small annoyances, and I love the capabilities the app provides. 5 stars once it is fine-tuned.
